Hi! I’m from Durham, NC, and am a graduate of Appalachian State University. I studied religious studies and non-profit management and spent my free time with the Presbyterian Episcopal Campus Ministry, watching Netflix, and listening to Beyonce. I lived in Miami for a year as a Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) and DWELLer through the Presbyterian Church (USA) and DOOR Miami. Being a YAV meant living in intentional Christian community with other volunteers, living simply, engaging in cross-cultural mission, developing leadership through faith in action, and discerning vocational calls. I worked at a local shelter for women and children while in Miami. Now, I am back in my hometown of Durham, and am figuring out what happens next.
